Search function very delayed or not working

I’ve noticed something that is a bit confusing, definitely would be for new people browsing the site, or people with a slower connection.

When I search for a name (in this case it was [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m]) there is a multiple second wait time (I’ve counted up to 8 seconds) where the results are loading, but there is no indication that anything is loading on the page, just a line and a sentence ‘No names match your criteria’ which is false because there is an entry for [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] but it just took ages to come up. This happens to some extent every time I search.

If I had a slower connection or wasn’t familiar with the site, I’d assume there was no such name and possibly click away before the results came up. I think you should add a “loading” button and/or get rid of the ‘no names match your criteria’ because it’s quite confusing.
